Gold Foil Experiment

Q. Rutherford's alpha-particle scattering experiments Rutherford's experiment studied the deflection or scattering of alpha particles, now known as helium nuclei, as they passed through very thin gold foil. As detected by a fluorescent screen, most of the alpha particles passed through the foil but a small number were deflected at very large angles. Based on the data gathered in the Rutherford's scattering experiments, the concept of atomic structure was modified. Which of the following aspects of the structure of the atom were validated by these experiments? Check all that apply.
